13 disgusting things people do at work

Picking at ear wax and scratching private parts are just the beginning. You’ve been warned.

More than 300 people responded to a Reddit.com feed about the weirdest things they’ve seen a co-worker do.

In this post, Nashville blogger Scott Gordon lists some of the icky highlights:

  • A pizzeria employee spotted a co-worker holed up in the restaurant’s walk-in refrigerator with a big bucket of tomato sauce, scooping it out with his bare hands into his mouth.
  • A warehouse employee observed a co-worker ask the new girl out on date, and she turned him down. When the dejected guy thought he was alone, he proceeded to punch himself on the side of the head, knocking himself unconscious.
  • A department store associate caught a Christmas season temp sniffing women’s underwear in the lingerie department. When asked about his behavior, the temp replied that he was checking to see if the undergarments had been worn.

Disgusting indeed. What are some of the weird things you’ve seen employees do at your company?
